On January 10, 2019, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Special Victim’s Unit and Crime Scene Investigators executed a search warrant at a residence in the 400 Block of Gladstell, Conroe, TX. The search warrant was for an investigation of Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child. The victim was 11 years old when the abuse started. During the execution of the search warrant at the suspect’s residence, the suspect was not home but detectives received information that the suspect was intending to flee the United States and head back to Mexico. An arrest warrant was filed and a second search warrant was executed on January 11, 2019 in a separate location to collect additional evidence.
On January 12, 2019 at approximately 8:30 AM Detectives with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit and SWAT; Investigators with the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office; Special Agents with the FBI, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the US Marshals Service were able to locate and apprehend the suspect in Conroe, Texas.
The suspect is Jose Manuel Tiscareno Hernandez (January 30, 1987) who is in the country illegally and has been deported back to Mexico on multiple occasions. He is currently incarcerated in the Montgomery County Jail, and an ICE hold had been requested due to the nature of this offense as well as his current immigration status.
